The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan first developer diary

Designing the ghost ship.

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan

Publisher Bandai Namco and developer Supermassive Games have released the first developer diary for cinematic horror game The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan.

Here is an overview of the developer diary, via Bandai Namco:

In the first developer diary, the Supermassive Games team talks about everything from the authentic audio of the door latches, the way sound reverberates inside the ship to the concept and influences behind the creation of the ship. Every detail was designed in order to give players the most terrifying and atmospheric experience possible.

The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of stand-alone, cinematic horror games, designed to deliver a new and terrifying experience at regular intervals. Each game is unconnected and will feature a brand-new story, setting and a new cast of characters. In Man of Medan, four young Americans set sail on a diving trip, to find a rumored WWII wreck. As the day unfolds, and a storm rolls in, their trip soon changes into something much more sinister.

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
